Best Practice for HPVM B.04.00

Hi Guys

There is any paper or any suggestion that I have to considerer to implement a VM enviroment??

Right now I have installed two VM, and I'm using Whole Disk Filesystem to install the VM. Is Whole Disk Filesystem the best way to install a VM, in order to get the best performance??

Best Regards

Shalom,

We've been over this a lot where I work.

Whole disk seems to make management and tracking of what disk is with what guest easier.

It also seemed to make our failover scenarios easier to manage.

We are in the process of writing a script that uses hpvmstatus to self document our hpvm systems in html and text format.

Stay in touch and eventually I will share the script on my blog

==> This will help you to reduce the complication and to get comparatively more peroformance ( by reducing the software layesr like filesystem/lvm
